Former WWE Diva Amy Dumas (Lita)
The Luchagors is a punk rock band based in Atlanta, Georgia. It is fronted by Amy Dumas, better known as Lita to pro wrestling fans of the WWE. During her last wrestling match at Survivor Series 2006, Dumas was seen wearing a Luchagors t-shirt.
After retiring from professional wrestling, Dumas moved back to Atlanta, Georgia and became romantically involved with her high-school crush Shane Morton. They began to write songs together and formed the band in the summer of 2006.
The name Luchagors is a homage to the term Luchador, a Lucha libre performer. Dumas performed this style early in her professional wrestling career. It is combined with the word gore, as in horror films, of which Amy and Shane are fans.
The band started out playing small gigs in and around the Atlanta area. Shortly afterwards, four tracks made their way around the Internet. Three can be found on the band's MySpace ("White Boy", "All There Is" and "Already Gone"), while live performances of "Burn" and a cover of "I Wanna Be Sedated" by The Ramones have shown up on YouTube.
The band's world premiere show was at the Rock-n-Shock event, which was held at the Masquerade in Atlanta, Georgia on September 14, 2006. The event took place to honor Sean Shocker.
In early 2007, they began recording their debut album, which is being produced by Skid Row bassist, Rachel Bolan. They finished recording the tracks for their album, on March 17, 2007. However, in August 2007, an original member of the group, Troy the drummer, left the band.
Their self-titled debut album was released physically and as a download through online outlets on September 11.
Amy is a known animal lover. In 2003, she founded the animal charity Amy Dumas Operation Rescue and Education (A.D.O.R.E.).
